PTTM DRAGRACING TEAM
PTTM Drag racing & Vegter pro mod racing joined forces in 2016 and since 2017 we know race completely under the PTTM drag racing flag! A completely new car design is coming soon during the 2017 season. PTTM Speedshop will remain one of the main sponsors for the coming years as for them is a way to keep improving there engine and car building department and to stay in touch with there clients and fans. The team races throughout Europe in the FIA Pro-modified European drag race championship with a 1967 Chevrolet Camaro that's running a 4000+HP Blown Hemi V8 engine that runs on Methanol fuel. The driver is the well known Dutch racer, David Vegter. The complete car, engine, and equipment are developed and maintained by the PTTM Drag racing team. Many new details were added and changed to the car, the engine was rebuilt and improved, the chassis got its upgrades and we mounted a lightweight hood and new doors to the car.
Seeing we want to keep going faster this is a process that never stops !. Besides the car, we also invested in a new team trailer and truck which is a huge asset to the team and the transportation of our team throughout Europe. The race car can be called one of the fastest muscle cars on the planet, as the car is good for speeds close to 400 KMH within the 1/4 mile and that's all done in under 6 seconds. That's fast!
